Brn.irE.ST, Nov. 10. Count von Ikrch
folil. the Austrian Minister of Foreign
.Mair.. will wait only a couple of days
'c- Sorvia to offer explanations for
ifoln.itiK Austrian consuls and hinder
np them in their communications with
'!iir Government. He will then pre
sent an urgent demand which will
partake of the character of an ulti
matum. Servia's action constitutes a viola
tion of international law. Moreover,
consul retain the functions conferred
'ipon them by the capitulations until
'he conclusion of peace.
There aro weighty grounds for th e
llief that the Servian Military Club
is usurping certain functions of the civil
government. That dangerous factor
explains the dilatorincss of the Bel
grade Cabinet, but I am still very hope
ful of a pacific ending.
Bulgaria, which is animated with a
desire to corno to n friendly arrange
ment with Rumania, will begin con
versations this week.
Conversations with the Servian Gov
ernment, if there still be n government.
At Belgrade respecting the unjusti
fiable treatment of the consuls at Pris
icnd. Mitrovitza and other places by
the new military authorities are now
rapidly drawing to un unsatihfaetory
close. Snpvia will have it in her power
for a couplo of days longer to offer
apologies and to make! amends for her
breach of international law, but. after
the lapso of that brief delay Austria
will deliberately proceed to enforce her
riehts which even uncultured peoples
will rcfcpect.and will vindicate tho na
tional honor from wanton affront which
has Martled into jealous watchfulness
all the parties in the Austro-Hungarian
If, contrary to reasonable expecta
tion. Scrvia will prove obstinate the
'ext step will be the despatch of a sum
mary note of the nature of an ultimatum
setting forth Austria's grievance and
ifmanding a speedy redressal.
The Belgrade Government has already
'tad its attention drawn to the circum
Mance that the capitulations which
regulate tho status of consuls of tho
ureat Powers to tho Ottoman Empire
tre not to be abrogated or suspended
by military occupation, nor will In any
ny be modified before the conclusion
of peace.
A precedent was afforded in Tripoli,
whero the consuls retained all the func
tions assured them by the capitulations
down to tho conclusion of tho cam
paign. Yet this Consul haa been de
liberately isolated by tho Servian mili
tary authorities with euch thoroughness
'hat his own Government cannot get
in touch with him.
In Mitrovitza a similar incident oc
curred, of which tho following is a
trustworthy account:
He.rr von Tnhy was informed by tho
Servian military authorities that he
, must never quit tho consulato without
, Servian escort. Accordingly whither
soever ho went ho was accompanied by
Servian soldiers. After Bomo time he
"as informed that he must not go any
where, without giving an hour's notice
of his intention to tho military com
mandant, after which he had to await
tlio arrival of soldiers.
Deeming this treatment incompatible
with the consideration due an Austrian

Washington, Nov. 19 William II.
Gray of HouMon. Tex . who was counsel
for H, Clay Pierce In the suit over the
control of the Waters-Pierce company by
the Standard Oil Company, called at tho

'-' company or -ew jersey; u. u. nag-
ler, Jr., president of the Standard Oil
Company of New York, and W. C.
Tengtie. director of the Standard Oil
Company of New Jersey, had not been
served. According to Gray, these, men
were Indicted last August by a Federal
Grand Jury nt Dallas, Tex., In n prosed
cotton under the Sherman anti-trust
"All the parties have been arrested,"
Gray said, "except the three men whoso
otllccs are at 2G 1 iron d way. New York
cltv, Archbold, Flagler and Teague. I
had previously Inquired at the DIstrlst
Attol.no.'s otll'ce In Dallas and was told
that warrants for their arrest had been
Issued anil forwarded to the United
States Marshal at New York city some
months ago.
"Mr. Wlckersham told me that he
personally was responsible for these
warrants not being served; that he had
ordered the Cnlted States marshal at
Now Y.ork not to make tho arrests
pending nn Investigation by the depart
ment to see whether the Grand Jury
was warranted In finding the Indict
ments. He said he did not believe there
was Mitllclent evidence to convict the
three men. Ho did not believe that on a
hearing pefore the United States Com
missioner after nrrest there would be
siittlclent evidence for their removal to
Dallas for trial.
"On both these points I took Issue
with Mr. Wlckersham. I said I did
not believe It was within the province
of the United States Commissioner at
New York to try the case, but such
was the province of the Federal Court
nt Dallas. Fortunate Indeed Is one who
can have his case, after Indictment and
before nrrest, tried In the Department

amined with n view of determining the
extent of guilt before the trial.

positively announced here to-night that
a twenty-five year traffic agreement
with (he Grand Trunk Railway ha
been Indorsed by the directors of IJie
New York, New Haven and Hartford
Railroad, signed by President Charles S.
Mcllen und submitted to President
Chamberlln of the Grand Trunk and to
the directors of that road In London.
Gov. Pothler to-night, when asked
about this announcement, sold that If
the General Assembly would stand be
hind him at the next session he would
break the monopoly which the New
Haven road has In this Stute of trans
portation facilities.
Washington, Nov. 19 The liuptes
slon is growing In Washington that the
Department of Justice will take some
action under the Sherman untl-trust
law to give relief to the New Fngland
cities that are complaining of the dis
continuance .by thi' Grand Trunk Rail
way of work on Its proposed Palmer-
Providence branch.
Members of the Rhode Islund Public
Utilities Commission und the Halltoad
Commissioners of Massachusetts had a
long talk with Attorney-General Wlck
ersham to-day and they cunie away
convinced that the Department of Jus
tice will move in the matter if evidence
can be produced of a conspiracy be
tween the Grand Trunk and the New
York, New Haven nnd Hartford Rail
road to restrain competition. If the De
partment of Justice decides to act it will
probably ask for a temporary Injunction
restraining the Grand Trunk and the
New Haven road from entering the
traffic agreement which la supposed to
be the basis of the discontinuance of
work on the Grand Trunk line.
As the result of the visit of the Rhode
Island and Massachusetts commission
ers to Washington It is possible that tho
money trust committee of the House
may Investigate tho supposed deal be -
t ween the New Haven and Grand Trunk
interests. It was learned to-day that a,
suggestion that this matter be referred
i ftlclally to the money trust committee
came from Sumuel Untermyer, counsel
for the committee. Mr. Untermyer Is
said to have wired to certain parties In
Providence suggesting that It would be
well to refer this matter to the money
trust committee.
The phase of the situation which the
money trust committee would investl-
gate would be the report that J. P. Mor
gan, controlling factor in tho New Ha
ven system through his powerful In
fluence In London banking circles,
brought pressure to bear which com
pelled the Grand Trunk Railway to
suspend work on its projected exten
sions in New England and to seek a
trattic agreement with tho New York,
New Haven and Hartford. The only
ground for this report, seems to have
been the random suggestion that came
from an Interstate Commerce Commls.
sloner and a few members of Congress.
It was pointed out that tho Grand Trunk
was obligated to depend In a large
measure upon London banking sources
for money to finance its railroad con
struction. The railroad commissioners from
Rhode Island and Massachusetts have
not decided as yet whether they will
lay the matter before the money trust
committee of tho House. They are.
however, considering such a course and
will decide before they leave Wash
ington. Whllo the visiting railroad com
missioners wero pleased with their con
ferences with the. Department of
justice, It Is apparent that the Attur-ney-General
believes It will be difficult
o frame a caso under the Sherman
law If such action Is deemed advisable.
The railroad commissioners laid before
the Attorney-General tho substance
of the proposed traffic agreement be
tween tho New Haven and the Grand
Trunk Railroad. This traffic agree
ment was shown to ihe commis
sioners yesterday by Vice-President
Chamberlain of the Grand Trunk. The
agreement contains no stipulation that
construction on the Grand Trunk ex
tensions Is to be abandoned and no
provision for the reimbursement of
that road for the 12,000,000 or more
that has already been expended on the
proposed new line Into Providence. It
lias been the contention of Mr. Cham
berlain and other officials of the Grand
Trunk that there wns no connection
between the extension of work on the
new lines and the negotiation for a
traffic agreement with tho New Haven.
Tho railroad commissioners In pro
testing to Attorney-Gcneral Wlcker
sham contended, however, thnt an
agreement In regard to the discon
tinuance of work on the Grand Trunk
extension at least exists Infcrentlally
and can be made the basis of action by
the United States Government.
The now traffic agreement as out
lined by the commissioners provides
for tho continuance for twenty-five
years of the agreement now In forco
for a one year term allowing' an ex
change of traffic by the Grand Trunk,
the Central Railroad of Vermont and
the BoBton and Maine over the lines
between Brattlcboro and Windsor and
White Illvcr Junction, The agree
ment further provides for a joint traf
fln arrangement .between tho Grand
Trunk and New Haven thai will give
the former entrance to all Important
points of the New Haven system.
Attorney-General Wlckersham went
over the Information submitted by the
visiting Ralllroad Commissioners and In
structed J (.'. Adkln, an assistant, to ex
amine the evidence with a view to as
certaining whether there Is a sufficient
basis for prosecution either criminally or
thtougli a suit In equity.
The Railroad Commissioners also called
at the White House and hud n Bhort
conference with President TaR. He
assured them of bis Interest In their
mission und referred them to the De
partment of Justice.
It was learned to-day that the rail
road oltlclals of .Massachusetts and
Rhode Island are supported In their
protests by the railroad commissioners
of New Hampshire. The representa
tives from the two New Fngland States
will confer to-morrow with members
of the Interstate Commerce Commission
and probably wllh members of the
money trust committee.

terday In an effort to collect 1270,000
on two executions. One was for 1180,112
and was on a judgment obtained by th

Deputy Sheriff O'Gorman went to the

Washington', Nov. 1. William J.
Bryan will be Secretary of State In the
Cabinet of President Woodrow Wilson
provided he accepts. It was learned
to-night on authority that can hardly
be questioned that the premier post In
the Wilson administration haa been of
fered to the Nebraakan and that ha
probably will accept. Furthermore, Mr.
Bryan apparently will be one of Mr.
Wilson's chief advisers In aelectlng the
new Cabinet.
The tender to Mr. Bryan of the port
folio of State Is the only Cabinet mat
ter that has been formally settled up
to this tlme.v
Mr. Bryan's Influence In the next ad
ministration no longer can be mint
mixed. Whether for weal or wo th
President-elect has mad acknowledg
ment to th leader of the o-call4
progressiva wing of the Deaoracy by
Inviting him to sit at his right at th
council table and to adtlsa.with him In
forming; a CabkaeU Hm apparently has
performed for Mr. Bryan th same office
that President-elect Taft did for Phi-
J lander C. Knox four years ago by offer
ing him the Secretaryship of, Stat at
the very outset of making of hit. Cab
inet and commissioning him to assist
in building the administrative machine. '
That Is the significance that is now
attached to Mr. Bryan's forthcoming
visit to Bermuda, which was reported
this afternoon in press despatches from
Hamilton, Bermuda, where President
elect Wilson Is now reposing.
Mr. Bryan has been In Washington
for more than a week. While he has
been very guarded In his talk even
with his personal friends, he has con
ferred with many of the party leaders
and to some of them he has appeared
In a conciliatory attitude, 'advising har
mony and apparently showing a will
ingness to cooperate for future party
From Information obtained here to
night it Is believed that Senator Hoke
Smith of Georgia could have a place
In the Cabinet If he would accept
He has been talked of for Secretary of
the" Treasury and Attorney-General.
His friends who know his ambitions
for public service are convinced, how
ever, that he will not go Into the Cab
inet, He prefers to continue in the
Senate, It Is said, where he probably
can remain as the representative of
Georgia as long as he cares to and
where there will be no limitation on
his activity. ,
One place In the Cabinet will go te
New England. It la believed that either
Louis D. Brandeis or George Fred Will
iams will be named. Mr. Brandeis la
being considered for Attorney-General
or secretary of the Department of Com
merce and Labor. He would probably
prefer to be Attorney-General, but up
to this time he has been spoken of
chiefly In connection with the head of
the Department of Commerce and La
bor, which directs the work of Investi
gating corporations through the Fed
eral Bureau of Corporations.
Senator James A. O'Gorman of New
York could probably have the place en
Attorney-General if he would take It,
it is understood he 'also wafers
to remain in the Senate, like Senator
Smith of Georgia.
The State of New Jersey will prob
ably have a seat at the Cabinet table
and the honor is likely to be conferred
upon Judge Westcott, who made the
speech at Baltimore nominating Oov.
Wilson. His name Is being carded for
the office of Attorney-General arid for
Secretary of War. He la lookedjupon as
one of the- most promising pieces of
Cabinet material now under considera
tion by President-elect Wilson.
It Is usual for the President to n
fer one Cabinet place on a cltlsen of his
own State If possible. Judge Westoott I
regarded ss a very able lawyer. He In
Identified with progressive Pemocrary in
New Jersey. His speech at the Balti
more convention nominating Gov. Wll
son gave him a national reputation and
commended him to the party leaders
there assembled.
He put Gov, Wilson and the Democ
racy generally under obligations tu dim
again when he agreed to retire from lb
